I don't think this has been asked before, so I'm making the question. The only two companies I know who make aircraft tyres (for commercial airliners) are Goodyear and Michelin. Are there other companies who produce aircraft tyres (e.g. Continental (the German tyre manufacturer, not to be confused with CO))?

Dunlop are a fairly large player, their factory is just a few miles from where I live - drive past and you'll often see a multitude of tyres; all shapes and sizes sat out in their yards. The name is synonymous with Birmingham, their former manufacturing location and warehouse, known as "Fort Dunlop" is now being redeveloped by Urban Splash into office space, hotels and apartments - very nice they look too!
